    It's Not The Inside It's The Outside

    It sucks feeling this way.

    People say I'm an open book but I don't think I am because I cry in private and quiet when I'm sad but often smile when I'm around people whoever they are. I really want a love story of my own and it hurts that I'm not ready for it cuz of my low self self esteem.
